Hard Loving You

They keep telling me all you need is love.

That I should be the one to love you.

As if my love could really do anything for you.

And I wish it could, would.

If I knew my love would fix you I would love you in a heartbeat.

But it’s not that simple, and it is not my love you need.

I am here.  I care.  I cry.  I pray.  I cry.  I cry.

Through tears I beg with God, please show me what it looks like to love.

In an instant my eyes are open, seeing clearer than I ever have before.

There I am in the fullness of my sin, and there He is in the midst of it all.

There I am on the strayed path, and there He is reaching out to bring me in.

It was hard to love me, but He did.

So now I know what it looks like to love.

There you are in the fullness of your sin, and there I am in the midst of it all.

There you are on the strayed path, and there I am reaching out to bring you to Him.

It is still hard to love you, but I will.

Because it is not my love you need but it is my love that will lead you to Him.
